Spun Summer - A Shrug

Once upon a story, I was given a bag full of beautiful little pipe cleaner bumblebees. The instant I saw those bees I knew they needed to be in yarn. In yarn that had flowers and grass. Because where else would bees fly about? You've seen the yarn once already, but you need to see it again. Because it's gorgeous. So here it is.

I knew I really wanted to show this yarn off. But how? A hat? No, not quite my forte in the knit wears department. A scarf? no, there was just to much to make a scarf out of. I could have made 3! but I'm selfish and wanted it all to myself. So a shrug it was. Here it is in all it's glory. Spun summer shrug Spun summer shrug spun summer shrug
And just because I'm showing it off right now, here are the lovely little needle felted details and the one little bee that made it into the final shrug. Happy with all his flowers.
